Cask Handpump at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico 02/08/2010 Big coffee aroma. Dark red coloured strong in alcohol and a little rich on the palate with a hint of bitterness in a coffee and vanilla finish.

Cask@White Horse, Parsons Green. Quite much pitch black colour with not too much head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, lots of coffee, chocolate and vanilla along with some liquorice as well. Also some mild alcohol. Flavour is a very pleasant mix of the same. Long coffeeish and roasted aftertaste.

2nd August 2010. Fonefan in the Masters Division - Jan’s Birthday Bash.
Clear dark brown beer. Light tan head. Lovely chocolate nose with some coffee in there as well. Light semi dry palate. Rich coffee and chocolate well integrated with some tangy dark fruits - blackcurrant, cherry. Cocoa chocolate. All very well joined up and balanced. Dry finish. Rich and very tasty.

2010-08-02. Very dark brown near black body with a modest beige head and lace. Flavour is interesting. Sweet malt core but the highlights are a dry coffee like roast, sweeter mocha hints, Coffee Crisp candy bar, lingering dry bitterness and mocha notes. 7+ More mocha in the aroma, very interesting roast character has a profile that defies a sufficiently detailed analysis by me, coffee grounds but in a more pleasant way than I usually mean when I say that. 8+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ Really good. Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, London

Wow. Truely outstanding. Opaque in colour; dark rich malts, creamy, guey, vanilla, really nice levels of bitterness, dark chocolate, coffee.Oily, low carbanation. Just an outstanding world class beer. Thanks Jan for this beer. This HAS to be brewed again.

Hand pulled cask at the C&K, Pimlico. Come on guys! How can you possibly give this beer anything short of a mid 4? Stunning body, roast malts and coffee with a distinct barrel aged woodiness. Plenty of alcohol but so drinkable. I drank far too many of these and subsequently failed to reach Jan’s do at Parson’s Green. Apologies for this mate, but thanks so much for making this beer happen.

evergreen0199 (1832) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2010
Cask at cask pub and kitchen. A deep brown/black coloured pour with a medium beige head. Sweet, boozy, coffee aroma. Tastes roasty, coffee, malty, sweet, nice mocha. Lovely stuff, even my work colleagues liked it.

thebeertourist (4667) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2010
Cask at The White Horse, Parsons Green. Black with a small froth. Earthy aroma, hints of chocolate. In the mouth fruity, bitter chocolate and quite earthy flavours. Original.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2010
Cask at FONEFAN in Masters Division Celebration, The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Black with a small off white head. Coffee aroma, intense and in high definition. Taste is sweet, candied black coffee, pleasantly chilled. My appreciation of this wonderful beer was only slightly diminished by the fact that during the moments I was sipping it, harrisoni burst into flames. Spoiler: he made a full recovery.
